Urban Rapid Participatory Appraisal (MRP) in Rio`s Pacified ‘Favelas’
Track: Urban and Regional Planning
Authors: Leandro Souza, Adriana Vial
The Urban MRP is a method to evaluate the urban conditions of favelas in the city of Rio de Janeiro contemplated by the UPPSocial Programme. Its main objective is to map internal structural differences by identifying spatial variations within these communities, produce detailed and comparable data and rank the conditions encountered, thus assisting the municipal government to better focus action and policies to attend the most vulnerable areas within and among these communities.
